According to this, Marriott ranks best in speed and quality of WiFi. Hilton apparently is awful. I personally agree in my experience I have had no issues connecting and speed is always fine. Thoughts everyone?
Very interesting and good to keep in mind. I have certainly had issues in occasional stays in non-Marriott properties, but I don't know if I have ever had an issue in a Marriott. I just expect the WiFi to be good, but it is a good reminder that this is not automatically so..
On the other hand, recognizing that this has been discussed before, I need to stop and remember the fact that in some properties I would be paying through the nose for that good internet speed if I were not at an elite status. So while patting Marriott on the head for good speed, I should also recall that this is a sore subject for non-elites.
I only have an issue with speed if there are a lot of other users. So what I do is I have my own router (not much bigger than a couple of packs of cigarettes). I connect to the wired LAN connection then have my own wifi network in my room. My wife and I can have a couple of devices each at the same time with no problems.
I still haven't figured out how she manages 3 farms on 3 devices at the same time.
One area of disagreement. I do a lot of "long stays". The property I'm at right now I connect to their network then have to use my room number and last name to log in. Problem is that only lasts 1 week. A week later a timer goes off (or something) and I may be right in the middle of doing something critically important (like updating my Facebook status or arguing with someone on Flyertalk) and the network goes down and I lose all my work.
They should adjust the billing cycle to the length of the reservation. Or at least give a countdown clock or something so I know when I need to sign up again.
But, yeah, the speed is good.
